What Is Faster, a Ferrari or a Lamborghini?
There has been a long-running debate about what car is the fastest. Everyone knows that Ferraris and Lamborghinis are both very fast cars. Which one is actually faster though? Let’s take a look below to the see the differences between the two plus the answer.
All About the Ferrari
There are a few differences between the Lamborghini and the Ferrari. The best way to see the differences is to read up on a little information about the two. Modena Motorsport, a Beverly Hills Ferrari service, has detailed all the specifics of the various Ferrari models here.
The Ferrari’s Body Styles
- Two Door
- Two Seat Berlinetta
- Two Seat Spider
- 2+2 Coupe Cabriolet
- Three Door
The Ferrari has a few more body styles rather than the Lamborghini. Let’s move on to horsepower. This will help you determine how fast it can get up to speed too.
The Ferrari’s Horsepower
A Ferrari’s horsepower can vary depending on the exact model. The average range for horsepower when it comes to the Ferrari is about 460 to about 963. That is a big difference! Depending on the type of Ferrari you could have a whole lot of horsepower packed into a small car!
The Ferrari’s Transmission
A Ferrari has a 7-speed dual clutch automated manual transmission. This is a bit different than the Lamborghini, which may result in the Lamborghini giving you a smoother and much faster shift of gears. See for yourself below.
The Ferrari’s Layouts
Ferrari models have several different layouts depending on which Ferrari one decides to buy or use. Take a look to see what the layouts are.
- Front mid-engine rear-wheel drive
- FMR and FM4
- Rear mid-engine rear-wheel
A Ferrari can cost $230,000 or much more, depending on the model. You can find a lot of information about the Ferrari at the official Ferrari website.
Now that you know some of the basics of a Ferrari, let’s move on to the Lamborghini.
All About the Lamborghini
Now that we have gone over some of the basics about the Ferrari, let’s go over a little bit about the Lamborghini. These are both great cars and both are very fast. We will see which one is faster in just a moment though.
The Lamborghini’s Body Styles
- Two Door Coupe
- Two Door Spider
- Two Door Roadster
As you can see, the Lamborghini, does have fewer choices in body styles. That is not what makes the car fast though. To learn that, we will need to pay more attention to the horsepower.
The Lamborghini’s Horsepower
Unlike the Ferrari, the Lamborghini does not get that high in horsepower. However, which type of Ferrari and Lamborghini you are comparing determines which one will have more horsepower. A Lamborghini has a horsepower of 550 up to 700.
You may have a lower horsepower with a Lamborghini, but it can certainly be higher than the lowest horsepower of a Ferrari, which is 460.
The Lamborghini’s Transmission
Just like the Ferrari, a Lamborghini transmission is a 7-speed. However, this is a 7-speed semi-automatic, or it can be a 5-speed manual. Once again, this is all depending on the specific model.
The Lamborghini’s Layouts
- Mid-engine Four Wheel Drive
- Mid-engine Rear Wheel Drive
A Lamborghini can cost $182,000 or much more depending on where and which one you buy. You can find more information on Lamborghinis at the official Lamborghini website.
So, Who Wins?
While the Ferrari can have a higher horsepower with some models, the Lamborghini can certainly possess more horsepower. Depending on the model of the two vehicle,s one may definitely reach higher speeds than the other and at a much faster rate. If the Ferrari is labeled a higher speed than the Lamborghini but has a lower horsepower than the Lamborghini, then you are going to get to speed much slower. However once to speed you will be able to go faster than the other.
So, the conclusion is very dependent on which car. For the most part, you can bet that the Lamborghini is going to be faster though.
You can find more information on Quora. They have some information on how quick these cars can get up to speed too.
